At the landfall site (Keti Bandar and vicinity), a storm surge of 3-3.5 meters (8-12 feet) is anticipated, which can inundate low-lying towns and could lead to coastal flooding during the time period.

Since the Arabian Sea conditions could become extremely rough/high and be accompanied by high tides along the coast, fishermen are urged not to venture into the open sea until the system is through by June 17.

Farmers are encouraged to plan their activities while taking the weather forecast into consideration. Tourists are advised to use additional caution during the wet season to prevent any dangerous situations. Staying in safe locations during dust storms, wind-thunderstorms, and exceptionally heavy falls is advised for the general public.

The forecast period is a time when all involved authorities are urged to exercise caution.
